It was a joke.  As I said before, I wouldn't add all those entities to
MicroXML, because it would break backward compatibility.

I just thought of a way of doing it, though: allow an extension to
the DOCTYPE that specifies the home on the W3C page of the entities.
Of course, MicroXML parsers won't actually load that; it'll just make
them switch on the entities.

Linguistics is arguably the most hotly contested property in the academic
realm. It is soaked with the blood of poets, theologians, philosophers,
philologists, psychologists, biologists and neurologists, along with
whatever blood can be got out of grammarians. - Russ Rymer
